My entire life I have had a love of Horses. I , also, love movies (Yes...even sappy ones.)
When WARHORSE came out, I wanted to see it but due to circumstances, did not. So, when I was able to watch it a few weeks ago I was more than thrilled. Nobody joined me in the watch,....except my dog, Finn! OK, I know...he's a dog, I need a life. But, I love animals & Finn is great to cuddle up with! It never seizes to amaze me...the sensitivity of an animal. They have always captured my heart.
Finn was so excited when Joey (the Horse) was playing & bucking in the field. What really captured my attention was when the war scene began & Joey was racing away for his life. Finn did not want me to watch and it visably upset him. It took some convincing for him to jump back on the couch next to me. I told him Joey would be ok...he was a strong horse (white liar, I am...I had no idea about the storyline and not to mention the river of tears flowing down my cheeks.) But, Finn cuddled up with me and I saw him watching intensely until the end when he slumped down next to me.
The movie ended. I'm glad I got to see the movie. It was sad, but Joey ... well, you'll have to watch the movie to find out what happened! That night, Finn stayed by my side...all night long...with those cute, big, brown doggy eyes.
Finn is my Joey! <3
